L3Harris BNVD-1531

The L3Harris BNVD-1531 is the result of the L3Harris focus on continuous product improvements in the areas of size, weight, performance and power consumption. The BNVD-1531 offers a lightweight, ergonomic design similar to the AN/PVS-31 but with significant weight reduction over the AN/PVS-15. It also incorporates features such as adjustable diopters, manual gain adjustment, individually rotating monoculars and an integrated infrared illuminator. The L3 BNVD-1531 can be operated as a helmet-mounted or handheld system.

The two main differences between the BNVD-1531 and the PVS-31a is the integrated IR illuminator and adjustable diopters. The BNVD-1531 uses standard milspec PVS-14 optics which gives the user focusable diopters, but also, allows for a more cost effective solution.

The BNVD-1531 can be run both off of an onboard AA battery or powered from the included PVS-31 battery pack. Because of the light weight design, the user does not need to run a counterweight and can simply use the battery pack to balance the helmet. The PVS-31 battery pack also has an on board IR strobe for signaling and aerial identification. The IR strobe is operated by a single switch on the back of the battery pack. One great thing about the ability to run a battery pack is the speed in which the goggles can be up and running. With the PVS-31 the user simply can drop the dovetail on a Wilcox G24 mount and plug in the battery cable to the battery pack port on the BNVD-1531 housing and use their goggles.

The L3Harris BNVD-1531 has an articulating housing with independently rotating optical pods. This lets the user deploy both tubes or a single tube. This is especially helpful when users are deploying their BNVD-1531’s while using a thermal device. The optical pod articulation also lets users stow their goggles without having to flip the goggles up on the helmet mount. This reduces snag hazard and additional height added to the helmet.

Tube Specs

The BNVD-1531 uses L3Harris Unfilmed White Phosphor autogated image intensifier tubes with a 2376 min FOM rating from the factory. These unfilmed tubes provide incredible clarity, low light and high light performance, and increased depth perception. These are L3’s most advanced intensifier tubes and offers significant performance increases over other white phosphor systems.

2376 minimum FOM Unfilmed White Phosphor:

  • FOM: 2376  minimum
  • Milspec Spot Spec: can have max 4 spots per tube larger than .003″, no spots larger than .003″ in zone 1.  Spots </= .003″ are acceptable.

2376 minimum FOM Unfilmed White Phosphor – Aviation Grade:

  • FOM: 2376 minimum
  • Aviation Spot Spec: Max 3 spots per tube larger than .003″ in zone 3, no spots larger than .003″ in zone 1 or 2. Spots </= .003″ are acceptable.
  • This option is for our customers that want a stricter spot spec offered from the factory.  This option is hand selected strictly to meet the above aviation spot spec. Even though PVS-31a’s in general have incredible tubes, spots are still a reality in all night vision. If you are a customer that wants to insure a stricter spot spec this is a great option.  Please understand that although an aviation spot spec is way stricter than the milspec spot spec, spots </= .003″ are still acceptable and are a reality of night vision.
  • Please allow for additional lead time for aviation grade as this is a stricter spot spec than offered from L3Harris.  Since we cannot order these to an aviation spot spec from L3Harris we cannot quote a definitive lead time.  On average this option takes 30-60 days longer than the standard option.

    This is my second purchase from Licentia and likely won’t be my last. I recently upgraded from high FOM RNVGs (built by licentia) to the high FOM spec wp 1531 bnvds. This system is exactly what I was needing after spending a few years using the other set and due to the high quality of my first set my investment had me almost breaking even. Customer service here leaves nothing to be desired and you will get exactly what is advertised, Quality.

    This was my first purchase from Licentia Arms and I couldn’t be happier. I had a few questions regarding the 1531s so I gave them a call and ended up having a 50 minute conversation. They answered every questions I had in great detail and even answered some questions I hadn’t even though of. The 1531 I received were better than I was expecting. Shipping was fast and the process painless. If you have a question, call these guys up and ask, they’ll make you return customer, like I will be. 10/10!

    First time buying from Licentia Arms, I picked up a pair of the 1531’s and matched with the assistance from Tyler I couldn’t be happier. I gave them a call and went over a few questions about the purchase, and ended up getting them shipped to me overnight. Flawless transaction and customer service. There’s only one place to shop for your NVGs. Look no further.

    Super dope product and excellent customer service! Will recommend LA to everyone! The bnvd 1531 is the closest thing to a perfect set of nods that you can acquire.

    I have to say with this being my first set on NVG, I was a little intimidated with how much info, do’s and don’ts. That quickly went away with one phone call with James, he walked me through step by step on what to expect, what would work for my application, and in no way seemed bored or disinterested, walking me through everything when picking my tubes. I feel like I learned more from a 35 min phone call than I did the weeks leading up to my purchase. You have earned a customer for life. Thanks Licentia Crew

    Highly recommend Licentia Arms Co. for L3 BNVD-1531. After months on the interweb doing research- and a short phone conversation with L.A., all my questions were answered and I felt further educated about ebi, snr, halo, etc. The aviation grade tubes I received are super clear without spots. Manual gain and onboard illuminator are nice features along with the pvs31a battery pack. Very satisfied with the product itself along with the quality of business from Licentia. Shipped to my door in 2 days!!
